2022: Striking the Right CX and Security Balance

2022: Striking the Right CX and Security Balance

The pandemic has forced many organisations to change how they interact with their customers. Many retaailers, for example, adopted a direct-to-consumer approach, using apps and social media in place of physical outlets. A significant number of organisations have retained remote workforces – or at least hybrid working – and these shifts have demanded a fresh approach to customer experience strategies, with an emphasis on delivering a seamless customer experience no matter where agents or customer services teams are located. Part of this is to ensure that security is woven into the heart of all customer interactions – particularly when handling customers’ card payments. As we enter 2022, consumers want businesses to ensure their personal data, including payment information is safe, and businesses need to have a concrete game plan in motion to make consumers feel secure.  In this short episode, PCI Pal’s Data Protection Officer, Innes French, provides predictions that all CX managers should consider in order to strike a balance between providing a frictionless customer experience with the security measures that customers expect and compliance regulators will be auditing.

Beyond the cloud contact centre - reimagining service delivery

PCI Pal was invited to join our partner, 8x8 and joint customer, Liverpool City Council, to speak at this year’s SOCTIM President’s Week conference. In 2020, spurred on by lockdown, public sector IT leaders found themselves at the forefront of a digital communications revolution. The race to keep staff and the local community connected saw many abandon their outdated on-premises systems in favour of cloud communications. Once the immediate need to securely enable a remote contact centre was addressed, innovative organisations, like Liverpool City Council, quickly realised that cloud communications provide far-reaching opportunities to reimagine how they serve the public. This episode is the recording, taken from the conference, where PCI Pal’s Director – Channel Sales, Phil Jude, Liverpool City Council’s Assistant Director ICT, Alison Hughes and 8×8’s Public Sector Director, Russell Tilsed, discuss service delivery best-practice beyond the cloud contact centre and why the public sector is leading the way. - The challenges and opportunities of enabling a cloud contact centre - Lessons learned about empowering an agile workforce - What does good communication look like in the post-pandemic era? - How IT leaders can shape public service delivery models - Maximising performance using AI and IVR automation - How public sector organisations can secure payments while operating remotely - How having the right technology and security solutions in place are key to maximising performance, while also remaining fully compliant. ...
